Hello from Nogales, AZ

My name is Jim and I'm a new forum member. I began using Pentax film cameras long ago with an MX. I ended up with three MXs, an LX and a PZ-1. I also accumulated many manual focus lenses. I now am enjoying two Qs as well as a Q10. I have four Q lenses and also have fun using my old film lenses on the Q for telephoto and macro photography.
Best wishes,

Welcome from Iowa! I think a few of the fellows here use the Q for bird shooting(which is healthy for the bird) One even said he mounted a red dot sight on top to help! Now that would be fun to see. Sounds like a real sweet camera, and with the ability to use k lenses even better!!
Dive in and have fun,

Thanks for the warm welcomes. I definitely have had a lot of fun with the Q system. I have DSLRs from another manufacturer, but when I want to have fun with photography, I almost always grab a Q.
Take care,
